The staff was very pleasant. Rooms were nice but plain Ikea styled. Clothes hangers were cheap and fell apart when I hug up my clothing. No cook to order food available. ReFuel was where you could get some hot food but the nuked offerings were minimal and overpriced. There are some places within walking distance to eat. The Galleria Mall... More

Great service! Very nice, modern style, hotel. Easy access to the Galleria and other activities. The hotel had a really nice pool area for relaxing and a chill bar to hang out at in the lobby. They also have a pool table and patio area for those who like to be outside.

I've stayed here a few times for business. The rooms are very nice with a very contemporary feel. I found the rooms to be not overly sound proof, I can hear people in other rooms or street noises more than other hotels. They don't have a restaurant on site but they do have a small bar which is nice. The... More

Recently stayed at the Aloft in Houston for business. It's a great location, close to lots of places to eat and the Galleria if you want to shop. I've wanted to stay here before, but my company always balked at the price, in comparison to other hotels. But, there was a deal available and I got to try it out.... More

I am growing to like the Aloft concept. It's value is combined with upscale decor and efficient use of space. The Houston Aloft is no different, but the staff itself was great. Check-in clerks were very nice, and staff was very attentive. The rooms are well maintained, and the small nature of the hotel made it very quiet and easy... More

Modern rooms which are compact and simple. Everything you need all combined in a neat small space. This is perfect if you need somewhere as a base hotel, its not a hotel you would want to relax in. The beds are super comfortable. The air conditioning unit is huge and very noisy which would be my only criticism of the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Appealing to on-the-go and in-the-know travelers, the Aloft rooms at Aloft Houston by the Galleria are equally carefree and bold. Nine-foot ceilings and extra-large windows create a bright, airy environment full of natural light. You’ll face the windows—not the walls—as you drift to sleep in our ultra-comfortable platform bed topped with plush bedding. Choose a 285-square-foot king room for one big bed, or grab a little more breathing room in the 315-square-foot rooms with two queen beds. Business or pleasure, work or play, each loft-like space keeps you connected. Your always-available in-room “office” includes an ergonomic workspace, plus complimentary wired and wireless High Speed Internet Access. You have your own entertainment center thanks to plug & play, our one-stop connectivity station. Leave your chargers at home: it juices up all your electronics—laptop, cell phone, MP3 player, and more—and connects them to a wall-mounted 42” flat-screen TV. A flip of the switch gives you high-def screening of your favorite flicks (or tomorrow’s presentation). In the sleek stylish bathroom, details are designed to stimulate your senses. Natural light illuminates the walk-in shower through a full-length frosted glass panel, which faces the guest room for a free flow of light with plenty of privacy. The eco-friendly dispenser doles out super-sudsy bath amenities specially created for Aloft Hotels by Bliss® Spa. Every Aloft room is attuned to you: whether you’re settling in or zipping out the door, you’ll find a host of helpful standard amenities to customize your experience. ... more   less
